There’s nowhere else like Western Australia for wildflowers – with more than 12,000 different species (more than 60% of which are not found anywhere else on the globe), it’s truly the greatest floral show on earth. And if you really had your heart set on seeing lots of tulips (a la the Netherlands), well, Western Australia has a bit of that going on that as well. Just head to the Araluen Botanical Gardens in Roleystone (south of Perth) and your tulip desires will be fulfilled.
